Dear Alex,

I know of a couple:
- Tubers Talk: Examining the Comments on Presidential YouTube Videos Using Dialogic Theory by Kristin Nicole English.
- Exploring the Gender Divide on YouTube: An Analysis of the Creation and Reception of Vlogs by Heather Molyneaux, Susan O’Donnell, Kerri Gibson and Janice Singer
- And of course xkcd has made brilliant comics about YouTube commenters. Here are two examples: 1, 2.

Good luck!

To anyone that can provide sources,

I am looking for any previous work analyzing the YouTube commenting system,
or research on comments in a similar online space where the commenting
system is not the primary function of the space (eg., how YouTube is videos
> comments). Any help is appreciated!
